  • [Cath Cauc] In Austria, Official Websites under Cdl. Schönborn Undermining Humanae Vitae

    The official website of the Austrian bishops under Cardinal Christoph Schönborn’s watch, as well as his own diocesan website, has published a series of articles in light of the 50th anniversary of the promulgation of Pope Paul VI’s encyclical Humanae Vitae. These articles present a major undermining of essential Church teachings as they were laid out in Humanae Vitae, even putting into doubt the abiding unlawfulness of contraception. Cardinal Schönborn is the “media bishop” of the Austrian Bishops’ Conference and, as such, officially the editor of Kathpress, the news website of the bishops’ conference. He is also responsible, as the...

    Austria’s bishops, led by Vienna’s Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, are indignant over a retired bishop’s passionate defense of Catholic teaching in opposing Church “blessings” for homosexual unions. After Bishop Andreas Laun, the retired Auxiliary Bishop of Salzburg, Austria, published Monday his strong rebuke of the German bishops for proposing to bless homosexual couples, there has been an intense reaction against him on the side of more progressive-leaning Austrian prelates. Cardinal Schönborn, President of the Austrian Bishops' Conference and papal spokesman on Amoris Laetitia, issued a statement Tuesday in Kathpress, the Austrian bishops' news agency that is supervised by Schönborn himself. “It...

    Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, 72, celebrated on December 1 "World AIDS Day" in Vienna cathedral with a liturgical service. The event was co-sponsored by the notorious homosexual Gerry Keszler, the organiser of the Vienna “Life Ball”, one of the biggest gay events in Europe. Keszler and Schönborn regularly meet for private dinners. Schönborn welcomed Keszler at the entrance of the cathedral. In his opening words he again welcomed Keszler and “all those, who bear responsibility for the Life Ball”. In a prayer for people, who died from AIDS, Schönborn insinuated that one day “each” of them will find a home with...

While in Colombia during his travels, Francis stopped the city of Cartagena de Indias, the capital of the region of Bolívar, on 10 September 2017.  After meeting the crowds of laity there, “he went into the inner courtyard where he met privately with representatives of the community of the Society of Jesus made up of 65 religious.”  A brief Question & Answer session transpired between Francis and the assembled Jesuits.  Even though none...

    Fatima Perspectives ^ | July 25, 2017 | Christopher A. Ferrara
    Sophistry is the use of subtly deceptive reasoning or argumentation to mislead the hearer.  Perhaps sophistry is too generous a description of Cardinal Christoph Schönborn’s defense of the idea, introduced into the Church via Chapter 8 of Amoris Laetitia (AL), that people living in “second marriages” condemned by Our Lord Himself as adultery can receive absolution and Holy Communion while continuing to live as if they were married and indulging in the marital act. Schönborn’s arguments are not particularly subtle and could be refuted by any well-catechized child.  But let us give him the benefit of the doubt and say...

    On Thursday, July 13, Cardinal Cristoph Schönborn — the pope’s chosen interpreter and advocate for his apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia — addressed an audience at the “Let’s Talk Family: Let’s Be Family” conference in Ireland in anticipation of the World Meeting of Families in Dublin next year. According to Greg Daly of The Irish Catholic, Schönborn opened his talk by assuring those in attendance that both the exhortation and the pope responsible for it are Catholic: Later, Daly tweeted that Schönborn said that all of the dubia questions can be answered with a “yes”: If you don’t recall what the answers are supposed to be,...

    IMPORTANT REPOST: The true enemies of the Church are bad Catholics It is a well-known account. Sister Marie Bernarde (Bernadette) Soubirous is in the convent of the Sisters of Charity in Nevers, it is 1870, war is raging throughout northern France as the Prussian-led German armies march towards Paris. The first printed version of the account,* published while she was still living, is the following. A visitor came to Bernadette at that time and made her the following questions: - Did you receive, in the grotto of Lourdes, or after then, any revelations related to the future and fate of...
  • Archdiocese website suggests ‘do not commit adultery’ doesn’t ban sexual sin [Catholic Caucus]

    Is the Catholic Church’s traditional sexual morality too rigid? Cardinal Christoph Schönborn’s flock is certainly being led to think so. In December, the website of the Archdiocese of Vienna led by Schönborn published a new presentation of the Ten Commandments. It included a commentary on the Sixth Commandment, “Thou shalt not commit adultery,” that could be interpreted to justify everything from masturbation to pornography and prostitution. The article concludes — openly invoking Pope Francis’ solicitude for sinners — that refusing communion to the divorced and remarried “seems very questionable from a theological point of view.” Says the article on the...

    Some make the mistake, often intentionally, that Islam means "peace." It does not. It means submission. The same false religion that spawns such submission is now dominant in our the Church of Christ under the Peronist thug now sitting in the Chair of Peter. Aided and abetted by his mathematically and theologically deficient Jesuitical sycophant. Antonio Spadaro, who is so tough, he blocks people on Twitter, these three amigos, which include the official interpreter of Amoris Laetitia, Cardinal Schönborn, are ramping up the demand that Catholics submit to their pathetical and filthy heresies. Submission. They want you to believe that...

    We are hearing more complaints of division. Why, goes the lament, is the Church divided? Why can we not simply “put our differences aside”? Simply, because two logically opposed things can’t both be true. This week, we have been offered two interviews that very helpfully delineate the main divisions in the Church today and the reason the Church is now divided into two utterly, implacably opposed camps, currently struggling for ascendancy. These, of course, are the same two sides that have been engaged for fifty years in a protracted Cold Civil War that has, with the publication of Amoris Laetitia,...

    Last week saw the release of an important interview (PDF link) given by Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna and one of Pope Francis’ most trusted theological advisers and spokesmen, to the Roman Jesuit journal La Civiltà Cattolica. The topic was the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia (AL): This interview has already made waves round the world, mainly because of His Eminence’s insistence on three points: first, that an apostolic exhortation such as AL is indeed an authoritative magisterial document, containing teaching that Catholics must assent to; secondly, that all previous teachings on marriage and the family must now be interpreted...

    Archbishop Chaput has just come out with pastoral guidelines for the implementation of Amoris Laetitia (AL) in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The guidelines unswervingly maintain the Church’s bimillenial discipline precluding the admission to Confession and Holy Communion of public adulterers who divorce and civilly “remarry” and decline to cease their adulterous sexual relations: With divorced and civilly-remarried persons, Church teaching requires them to refrain from sexual intimacy. This applies even if they must (for the care of their children) continue to live under one roof. Undertaking to live as brother and sister is necessary for the divorced and civilly-remarried to...

    Austrian Catholic website reports that on 7 July, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn published an interview in the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, in which he said that Amoris Laetitia is a binding doctrinal document. From now on, says Schönborn, all the previous magisterial texts concerning marriage and the family “have to be read in the light of Amoris Laetitia.” Schönborn also said in this interview – a fuller excerpt of this text has now been published in English in the Jesuit journal Civiltà Cattolica – that it is “obvious” that Amoris Laetitia is an act of the Magisterium since it...

Instead, it was Austrian Cardinal, Christoph Schönborn, who was elected by the other Synod fathers of the group to become their moderator. Archbishop Heiner Koch, Berlin, was elected to be the relator of the group. The German-speaking group thus set a more “progressive” tone, since...

    "It is fascinating to see how Pope Francis is encouraging, reviving and renewing the church. Our meeting with him was an excellent lesson on how to live the Gospel today," Cardinal Christoph Schönborn of Vienna said after a 90-minute audience with the pope during the Austrian bishops' "ad limina" visit to the Vatican in the last week of January. The Austrian bishops took the results of the recent Vatican questionnaire to Rome with them. Responses showed that 95 percent of those who had filled out the questionnaire in Austria were in favor of allowing divorced and remarried Catholics to receive...
